I say his assets far outweighs his flaws
Fair statement. I agree.

I'd certainly take him on the Oilers. Just saying that (what I perceive as) the character issues he has lower his value, and because of it he isn't worth Yakupov- to me. Yak is pretty much exactly where Stamkos was in his first year. Wouldn't want to see him scoring 60 in a couple years on another team, while Subban is here clashing with Hall/Nuge/Ebs/Schultz/coaching staff/Joey Moss/whoever.
